Pan Grilled Salmon With Mint Yogurt Chutney


I don't see a point of forcing out an intro for the sake of it. Instead of sounding like a broken record or repeating like a parrot and taking you back to the same intro as shared in my  recipes Curry Leaves Grilled Salmon,

Teppanyaki Salmon,
Thai Salmon Noodles
and Lemon Parsley Baked Salmon,
let me move to what I did and the recipe itself.

For this recipe, I seasoned salmon with ginger and garlic paste and a tiny bit of chili powder. I have never deep fried salmon and really, I am not sure if its the right thing to do because salmon is such a flavorful fish. Deep frying just kills the wonderful taste of it. Hence, I pan grilled the seasoned salmon to retain its soft and flaky meat. You can also use a non-stick pan and fried it with a small amount of oil.

While the pan grilled salmon is juicy and delicious by itself, some of us may prefer to dip, drench or drizzle it with a minty and tangy chutney - a blend of yogurt and mint leaves.

Ingredients
For the fish
1 piece (about 350g) salmon - rinsed and pat dry
1/2 tsp ginger paste/chopped ginger
1/2 tsp garlic paste/chopped garlic
1 tsp curry powder (any type should be ok)
Salt for taste
1 tbsp oil
For the chutney
2 tbsp yogurt
1 handful of mint leaves
Salt for taste
Lime juice (if needed)
** Blend/process all together
Method
Rub salmon with all the ingredients except oil.
Place it on a heated grill and pour oil all over.
Grill both sides till its cooked.

  2. Salmon looks delicious with perfect grill marks.. Mint yogurt makes a refreshing combo for this.. I too use similar ingredients for preparing salmon but shallow fry it. I am so tempted by this, would try it this weekend.. :)

  3. Thanks for sharing another interesting variations of salmon, loved the baked salmon recipe you posted sometime ago. We are fond of salmon but could never get something which looks interesting, so for a long I have been doing a lot of trial and error and very few recipes click with my family... Will try this as well soon!
